Fresh Organic Produce


by member Brandi Monson

Did you know that you can now get a fresh produce share/bag each month through SEKS Buying Club? UNFI, our main warehouse supplier, partners with Albert’s Organics in order to provide us with organic produce.

Each month our Produce coordinator picks out an assortment of fresh fruits and veggies to divide up into share bags. Each participating member then gets a large grocery sack full of delicious organic produce, which is something we find hard to buy locally!

Our Produce Coordinator takes special care to order items not locally available as to not compete with local producers or farmers market! Another goal is to source American produce when possible. Some things just aren’t available from the USA, like bananas which have to beĀ  imported. Each month offers a different blend of fruits and veggies.

This summer we have enjoyed produce such as watermelon, apples, pears, grapes, lemons, pluots, lettuce, sugar snap peas, avocados and much more! In addition to share bags, we operate a splits page on our Yahoo Group for extra produce items. Members have been splitting additional cases of produce such as: greens, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, melons, mangoes, bananas, broccoli, just about every imaginable commodity!

The produce bags are a great bargain and lots of fun to add variety to your diet! If you’d like more information, contact the club coordinator via e-mail: seksbuyingclub (at) gmail.com
